Miguel Cabrera on Pace for 162 Errors

This is something More Hardball will be monitoring all season long- Miguel Cabrera's errors. On Opening Day in Detroit, Cabrera got the start at 3rd base, his first action there since early in the 2008 season. In 14 games in '08 at 3rd, he botched 5 plays for a .900 fielding percentage. He made one error yesterday, to give him a .500 fielding percentage for 2012, and is on pace for 162 errors. Don't expect things to improve much, as Miggy has been a disaster at every defensive position he's manned (1st, LF & RF as well), with a negative DWAR every season since he came into the league (since 2003). His career DWAR is -5.4, that's bad. After all, the poor guy just got back from fielding a ground ball with his face in spring training.

DWAR = Defensive Wins Above Replacement
